in benghazi over the past couple months. we've been hearing in our time on the ground here, at least to some degree, the militants, militia very much in charge in benghazi. gregg? gregg: we're hearing there is a protest and counter protest in libya. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: interesting stuff. protests planned in benghazi a big change from others we're seeing around the world in favor of the u.s. or at least honoring the late u.s. ambassador and other americans. but the broader message from the citizens there that the government based here in tripoli needs to do more to crack down on militant groups in benghazi. the problem is, another protest, gregg, is planned at the same place, at the same time by one of those militant groups. an outfit of ansar al-sharia suspected having links to the killing. they said they are innocent. they will be saying that today, maybe in a forceful day. we'll be monitoring it all. back to you. gregg: greg palkot in tripoli. greg, thanks. martha: the white house is doing a complete reversal on the characterization of the attack in libya. the adm

libyan city of benghazi. militants have been tied to security throughout the country and they could be tied to the killing of chris stevens. folks here have had enough. the compound was ransacked. militia members were killed. they are going for illegitimate and abandon their bases by tuesday. some are skeptical that this will happen but still, trouble some groups, have left problems in two different cities. and the events could be seen by the public backed by the government wreaking their own revenge for the killing of stevens and three americans. maybe it's a good thing because what we understand from our discussions with officials here in benghazi the probe in the killing is going know where fast. we are told by officials they have nothing knew to report that. and we're told the f.b.i. team to come in to investigate the killing remains here in tripoli. according to all reports they have not reached benghazi amidst new concerns in tampering with the crime scene in benghazi and new concerns that the bad guys might be getting away. this militia crackdown means that the militants, pos
, in the wake of the deadly protest in benghazi. pro-american demonstrators have lashed out at the armed militia groups, they say operate outside the confines of government. good morning to all of you, thanks for staying with us. this is a brand-new hour inside america's election headquarters. >> the new government demand comes after a spate of violence has erupted and believed to be carried out by militias in the area, including the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed ambassador stevens. we have more details here. gregg, what's the latest on the crackdown unfolding in libya? >> reporter: yeah. the u.s. government officials are pleased with what the libyan government is now finally say about this militias, as the militants are tied to a lot of troubles and possibly tied to the killing of u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans nearly 2 weeks ago. we have been watching the public apinger and the violence out of the eastern libyan city of benghazi with compounds ransacked with the protesters and the militia members being killed. by tuesday, all of these armed gangs have to giv

states. at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya's second largest city, at least one american staff member was killed after gunmen stormed the compound and burned it down. we've got some amateur video here into nbc news from the scene. if you listen, you can hear gunshots going off in the background. witnesses say the attackers were armed with automatic rifles, rpgs. libyan forces stationed there said to have little to stop the violence. >>> in neighboring cairo, angry protesters scaled the fortified walls of the u.s. embassy, destroyed the american flag and replaced it with a black islamic banner. most of the u.s. diplomatic staff had already been evacuated in anticipation of this protest. both incidents reportedly are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel.
ambassador chris stevens in benghazi. they usually laun don't usually a military style assault. they see the attack differently than ambassador rice. >> the way the perpetrators acted i think we -- they are choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, this leaves us with no doubt this was preplanned predetermined. >> the chairman of the house untell against committee made a final investigation at least not yet. they were only moderately confident about this there are huge gaps. >> they are hammering the foreign policy. especially the islamic extremism contributing to the current unrest. >> we will continue to monitor this one. >> israel has all eyes on iran while muslim froess rageling on. >> benjamin netanyahu is talking about nukes. we are seeing a major difference on where iran's capables stand. listen to this. >> the issue is how to prevent iran from completing nuclear weapons program. they are moving very rapidly to completing the enrichment of the uranium they need to produce a nuclear bomb. they will be 90 percent there 6 months from now. it is a red line before ir

this year. libya, where four americans were murdered at the consulate in benghazi last week gets a little over $13 million in financial assistance, and egypt where we saw people burning the american flag, they accept more than $1.5 billion from the united states, and the obama administration would like to keep that money flowing, sending secretary of state hillary clinton to make the case to congress today where the administration's getting more and more pushback on this issue. joining me now, retired four-star general jack keane who's a former vice chief of stash for the army and a fox news military analyst. general, more and more we're hearing republican lawmakers, and we had senator rand paul last week saying it's time to put a stop to this. why would we be funneling billions of dollars worth of aid into countries where we are seeing scenes like this? what's your thought? >> well, listen, your viewers and anybody looking at those guys on the wall and burning the american flag would have an understandable reaction, and i can certainly understand the frustration on the part of congress,

nations told chris wallace on "fox news sunday" yesterday about what happened in benghazi. >> people gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent. those with extremist ties joined the fray. and came with heavy weapons which, unfortunately, are quiet common in post revolution nay libya and that then spun out of control. but we don't see, at this point, signs that this was a coordinated planned premeditated attack. >> the attack did kill the u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. tonight there is word ambassador stevens was still breathing in a group of libyans found him inside that consulate. witnesses tell the associated press that the men drove him to a hospital and that he died there catherine herridge is live in our d.c. newsroom working this story tonight. catherine, back to this debate about what was going on. it's my understanding that you have information that leads us to believe that there was no protesting happening before this murder happened. >> well, that's right, shep. intelligence source on the ground in libya tells fox news that there wa

to join in this quote, blessed mission. in benghazi, hundreds protesting against the militia blamed for the a tack on the embassy. and to rid them of the those in eastern libya and the collapse of the regime. and a source telling the evidence points to a joint evident by al sharia not tied with al-qaeda, but sympathetic tried to fail establishing a state in eastern libya. and, the detainee is linked to the group in libya considered the most extremely. given the consulate attack is now branded tyrannyism, why the obama administration seems to be leaning to criminal prosecution. >> how could an attack go that long and what kind of response do we have in place for an attack that of could have went from six to ten to 12 hours and the law enforcement model seems to be being used here. i think that's a huge mistake, the fbi agent who briefed us was singularly unimpressive. >> reporter: fox news is first it report on 9-13 two days of the attack there was evidence suggesting insider help and reuters is now reporting that that is the central focus of the fbi investigation. guys, back to you
. >> we hear from you fully about your -- benghazi right now and a couple of specifics i want to ask you. was there ever any discussion, after the benghazi attack, of putting marines at the compound in benghazi to help secure it? and what is your assessment and analysis of al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates or inspired organizations there, their ability to assemble and generate an attack capability of this sort very rapidly, and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat? what does it say to you about al qaeda related groups in that region? >> okay. first of all with regards to benghazi, what we, what we responded to was a request to provide a f.a.s.t. team that would go into tripoli and try to provide additional security there and we responded to that and did that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been, you know, pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and, other security personnel that were there. so, the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli and that's what we res
: and that journal, megyn s a hardbound book that cnn says it found in a largely unsecured u.s. consulate in benghazi four days after ambassador stevens was killed. now, the journal included seven handwritten pages by the ambassador. now, the journal was reportedly returned to the ambassador's family, and cnn says it initially agreed to abide by the wishes of the family not to use et or allude to it until the family got back to them. but four days later without hearing from the ambassador's family, cnn went with it saying, and i'm quoting here: cnn did not initially report on the existence of a journal out of respect for the family, but we felt there were issues raised in the journal which required full reporting which we did. issues including that ambassador stevens was concerned about security threats and the rise of islamic extremism. now, the state department calls the move, quote, indefensible, accusing cnn of copying the journal, then contacting the family saying, and i'm quoting: whose first instinct is to remove from a crime scene the diary of a man killed along with three other americans ser
.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. u.s. officials say lost amid the tragedy and dramatic headlines was the fact that most were not massive protests. but crowds numbering in the hundreds, sometimes in the thousands. >> the mobs we've seen on the outside of these embassies are a small minority. they're the ones who have largely lost in these emerging democratic processes. >> reporter: susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., said the attacks on u.s. targets began as spontaneous protests, rejecting earlier claims they were part of a plot to coincide with last week's anniversary of 9/11. the anti-american protests have fast become the obama administration's most pressing foreign policy crisis. but the white house faces other urgent challenges in the region. on sunday, four u.s. soldiers were killed in afghanistan. the latest in a breakout of insider attacks where afghan forces target nato troops. and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu continued to ratchet pressure on washington to set a red line for iran, claiming iran is months away from being able to build a nuclear bomb. >> i think th
the search for whoever attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. four americans were killed as you know in tuesday's attack including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. investigators say if the violence was carried out by a specific group or if it was planned they can't say yet, that's why they are investigating. according to reports out oof libya, four people have already been arrested for these attacks. meanwhile, it was a heart breaking tribute for those four americans who lost their lives in the libyan attacks. >> we welcome home for the final time ambassador chris stevens. mr. sean smith, mr. glen doherty and mr. tyrone woods. >> president obama took part in the transfer of remains ceremony at andrews air force base yesterday along with vice president biden and secretary of state hillary clinton. he spoke of the ultimate sacrifice made for our country. >> they had a mission. and they believed in it. they knew the danger and they accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal. they lived it. >> the president also vowed to bring those responsible to justice. and
-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. that's the first time the white house has characterized this as a terrorist attack. carney, though, also appears to stand by this comment from wednesday. listen. >> based on the information that we had at the time, and have to this day, we do not have evidence that it was premeditated. >> jamie rubin is former assistant secretary of state. he's currently counselor to new york governor andrew cuomo. let's talk about what seems to be contradictory. you hear from jay carney, you hear from the white house, you hear from the state department, it was a terror attack, but not preplanned. you hear from the prime minister of libya that, in fact, it was preplanned. why disconnect on those two fronts? >> i think a lot of the wording is getting a little confused. i think what the administration is trying to communicate is that they don't believe that, say, six months in advance, a group sat down and said on september 11th we're going to attack the american embassy using this method at this place. but, it does appear that the individuals
, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution he supported the birth of a new democracy as libyans held elections and built new institutions and began to move forward after decades of li dictatorship. chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. along with three of his colleagues, chris was killed in the city he helped to save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story because chris stevens embodied the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers, he built bridges across oceans and cultures and was deeply invested in the international
in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we receive from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries in the region, including egypt, tunisia, and yemen, have taken steps to secure our diplomatic facilities. and so have religious authorities around the world. but, understand that the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. there are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded. the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully. diplomacy can take the place of work. -- diplomacy can take the place of war. all of us have a stake in working for a greater opportunity for our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. we are serious about these ideals. we must speak
